Speaking Testimonials

“Patricia, Thank You! I really did enjoy your presentation to Advertising, Marketing and PR of Rhode Island. This is the second time you have done a presentation for AMP-RI and we were so pleased to have you return. Your two transition studies were excellent. I know that the open format was a little different but it really worked well with the group and their interaction also provided some interesting feedback. We had a great audience with lots of Q & A after. I think that everyone came away with an appreciation of what you can do as a transition coach. You have the knowledge and expertise to help your client look within themselves for answers. I think you left us all with positive thoughts and a new approach to dealing with change in our lives. It was truly an informative and fun evening.”Joyce Pucino, President, Pucino Print Consultants

“Congregation Beth David cannot thank you enough for speaking to us for our Kaddish for Six Million Memorial Day. You were truly what “they” say you are: Inspirational, Motivational, and Eloquent. The stories you shared with us were miraculous. Thank you for following the mission of spreading the word regarding the inhumanity of the history and time that sparks the heroism, determination, intelligence of so many who would not be defeated without a fight. Your presence, your aura, your sincerity in the sharing of these stories gave to 30 people in the audience much to think about, and much to springboard toward in conversation following your presentation….Though we did not fill the room, I can assure you, that what you said to us, has insured with others that were not there, and thus the benefit of what we learned that day with you, has spread beyond the four walls of that room. Thank you again, and may you continue ‘to be the media maven of positive messaging.'”
